But, after all, so was the logger’s, and I turned out (mostly) okay didn’t I? I could have discovered that we both… I dunno… crochet? Drawing a blank here. My point is, learning more about a someone is almost always better than ignoring a them . If nothing else, it provides context for all the things you may hate about that person.
